Jessica Alter has been starting and growing some of Silicon Valley's most impressive companies for her entire career, but her latest endeavor, Tech for Campaigns, is her most important startup yet. What started as a simple Google Doc shared among her friends and colleagues in the tech world to see who was interested in providing tech expertise to Democratic campaigns following the election of Donald Trump has since morphed into a full-fledged organization with an army of volunteer digital talent ready to be dispatched to progressive and centrist campaigns at a moment's notice. On episode 13 of Next Gen Dem, Jessica and I discuss how Tech for Campaigns came to be, how we can ensure technological innovations live on in future elections, why we need to focus on the state level, and how Democrats need to take a page out of the Chicago Cubs' playbook.
